U9 v St Hugh’s U9
Witham Hall – 19 ½
St Hugh’s – 18
The U9 Rounders team travelled to St Hugh’s for a most enjoyable game of rounders. The girls got off to a shaky start with Grace the only scorer in the first 9 balls. They soon found their stride though and reached a total of 8 rounders in the first innings. In the field Lydia was a shining star, making quick decisions. She managed to get 2 of their players out at 2nd post, however St Hugh’s batted well and scored 8 ½.
In the second innings Witham really stepped it up in bat. Alexandra scored a hatrick and every girl managed to make contact with the ball at least once. We scored 11 ½ in this innings, setting St Hugh’s quite the challenge! As we went into field Sammie was nervous and gave away quite a few no-balls, but after a quick change around Clara stepped up and did well under pressure. St Hugh’s scored 9 ½ in the second innings, making Witham the winners by just 1 ½ rounders!
U11B/C Mixed rounders with Worksop College
A lovely afternoon of rounders was enjoyed by the U11B/C combined with 19 Worksop Prep, Ranby House girls. Due to numbers we mixed up the girls to form four teams and played two matches. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and all sides demonstrated some excellent batting and wonderful fielding despite having never played together previously. Very well done to you all!
